I've heard a lot of comparisons of Buxton to Starling (2011 5th pick I believe?) and have a question about the two. Who is/was the better prospect before their respective drafts?

BA had that question on a recent ask BA. Callis had Buxton rated ahead but suggested KC would've taken the hometown player instead. Buxton has a better hit tool now but Starling has more power, IIRC.

Thanks for the analysis. I appreciate it.

I remember Keith Law saying he'd have Buxton ahead of Starling as well.
